Escape to the potager and spend the morning with head gardener Alison Verrion.
Alison will show you how to propagate your own herbs for use in the kitchen.
The morning in the garden includes –
- We discover what is a herb? How much space do you need to grow them successfully, can they be grown in containers and how many plants should you grow for your kitchen.
- Then we will look at woody herbs such as Rosemary, Sage and Myrtle and discuss how to grow, propagate and prune them and importantly for this time of year how to ensure that you have new plants for next spring.
- Next we will explore seed sowing under cover to ensure you have a supply of hardy crops such as chervil, coriander and parsley during the long, cold months as well as an early crop for 2019.
- Finally we will divide herbaceous herbs to include oregano and marjoram.
Following a morning in the garden or under cover in the potting shed, we will gather together to enjoy a two course seasonal lunch.
We will provide everything you need for a morning in the kitchen garden as well as steaming mugs of coffee, herbal infusions and homemade cake throughout the morning. However you may prefer to bring your own gardening gloves, outdoor clothing and boots.
A two course vegetarian lunch will be served in the garden if the weather is kind.
You will receive an electronic copy of our gardening notes following the course.
